: FRENCH FOLK SONGS

Arranged by English Composers
A Recital by Raymonde Collignon
Raymonde Collignon, whose first broadcast was in 1928, has for long been known as one of the most accomplished ' diseuses ' before the public. She specialises in old French and English popular songs, many of which she sings in settings or arrangements specially made for her by composers, such as Bax, Ireland, Lambert, Howells, Vincent d'Indy, and Kodaly. These have been published as a ' Repertoire Collignon '.
Although properly a diseuse, this does not mean that she cannot sing ; as Ernest Newman has said of her, ' when we become used to the scale on which she is working, we perceive all sorts of subtle shades in her voice ... her art is admirable in its reticence ... and something to enjoy rather than to write about.'
The art of the diseuse '—something between singing and reciting -has been specially cultivated in France (one has onlv to think of Yvette Guilbert ), but Raymonde Collignon , who, when she is not broadcasting sings in costume, has built up for herself a repertory of real musical value.

: ANONA WINN invites you to ' THE BUNGALOW CLUB

to meet
Suzette Tarri
Morris Harvey Harold Clemence Marcel Boulestin ' Tommy Tucker '
The Harmony Imps and Billy Ternent's Beachcombers
Anona Winn, Australian horn, was going to be a pianist. The piano she used to practise on as a girl in Sydney was manufactured by Pat Waddington 's grandfather, who had given it as a present to his friend, Anona's grandfather, when he went out to Australia. Anona and Pat are friends today and are both broadcasting.
From the age of eight she could read music quickly, but even in her 'teens her hands were so small that she could never stretch an octave easiiy. So she gave up the idea of being a pianist, and studied singing at the Albert Street Conservatorium at Melbourne. When Apollo Granforte visited Australia she studied
Rigoletto under the famous baritone. Then she ran away and joined a Melbourne company of The Merry Widow. She toured India, came to London, and did a tour with Jose Collins in A Greek Slave.
All this experience has gone to make Anona Winn one of the most versatile artists on the air. Few broadcasters can do so many different things and do them all so well. She made big hits in a number of radio revues, and ' Songs from the Shows ' brought her fame.

Dietrich Buxtehude was born in Denmark in 1639 and died at Lubeck in 1707. He became one of the most celebrated musicians in North Germany. His most important post was as organist at the Marienkirche at Lubeck, and his fame was such that Bach is said to have walked fifty miles to hear him play. As a composer he devoted himself chiefly to church music, his favourite forms of composition being cantatas and pieces for the organ. However, he wrote a few secular works, including several trio-sonatas. JOHN TICEHURST
Girolamo Frescobaldi was the most distinguished organist of the seventeenth century. At one time he was organist at Antwerp, but later was appointed to St. Peter's, Rome, where his playing used to draw huge audiences numbering as many as 30,000 people. He is said to have founded a school of organ playing which influenced the whole of Europe. JOHN FRANCIS, DAVID MARTIN, AND

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
